Built in 1884, this authentic adobe structure was erected by the first pioneers of Palm Springs and was home to John McCallum, the town's first permanent white settler. The museum is housed within this adobe, which still features its original hardwood floors and frame. The house is filled with antiques that are actually the personal mementos of Pearl McCallum McManus. Pictures and video throughout offer a fascinating glimpse of Palm Springs' early inception and living conditions. You'll also be able to see clothing, tools, books and Native American crafts at this museum. Admission is a $1 suggested donation, and the McCallum Adobe Museum is closed seasonally June through September.
